I need help figuring out a grading situation. So we just bought a used 33x15 oval AGP and are doing everything ourselves, minus the initial grading of the spot. We had the grading done the other day and ended up running into septic pipes, so we had to move the pool over about 10 feet from where we originally wanted the edge to be, and also build up the spot a few inches with recycled (crushed/crumbled) concrete/asphalt stuff. Yesterday we spent the day leveling the side supports and starting to spread the sand out. I've attached pictures of our progress. We have a little situation we're not sure what to do about. On one side of the pool where we originally started digging and hit the septic pipes, we have a mess. Due to the level of our yard, we had dug down over 2 feet on that side - but like i said - then ended up shifting the whole spot over about 10 feet or so. We had a downpour today and the spot where we originally starting digging was just filling up with water. Some of the water was escaping and going downhill (see the arrow in the picture) but a lot of it collected and pooled as you can see. We havnt done anything with that side yet because we're not sure what the best thing to do would be. We've thought maybe do a retaining wall, maybe grade a corner of the hole so it empties downhill, etc. We're really not sure the best thing to do, and neither did the guy who graded the spot for us. We started to backfill the area but the stuff was so wet that he had taken out (from the rain) that we stopped and determined that we should maybe bring in some drier stuff. We are going to be putting a french drain around the pool, but obviously we also need to do something with that dug out section. We're trying to not spend a fortune (or else we would have started with a new pool and someone to do all the work!) but I know we need to do it right or else we'll be redoing it down the road. Does anyone have any advice?
